The risk introduced to your business by any supplier in your supply chain inherently becomes your risk. Today, owners, prime and subcontractors are no longer insulated from one another’s safety liabilities. Employing organizations will be held accountable for the decisions they make on who they hire – including third-party contractors.

These companies are taking a proactive approach to managing their relationships with third-party contractors, suppliers, and vendors using a contractor management system. These industry leaders are drawing a line in the sand of who they will work with based on key safety and performance metrics. By doing this, they are able to improve their safety performance and reduce the risk to their organization.

How to Evaluate the Safety Performance of Your Contractors

Using leading and lagging indicators

This webinar takes place on

Thursday October 26, 2017

1:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM MT

It's well established that lagging indicators are a proven method for evaluating contractors, in fact, the National Safety Council just published a study showing the positive results of contractor safety management. But many organizations including OSHA, and the National Safety Council are encouraging companies to use metrics that go beyond compliance-- metrics that drive business in a direction of continuous process improvement. 

What are you doing today to help your contractors sustain and improve performance for tomorrow? This is where leading indicators can be so valuable. Are you having conversations with your contractors on a regular basis to provide feedback and to encourage them to get better? 

Join us for this webinar where we take a look at important lagging indicators to measure contractor safety and journey with us through what we're doing today to assess contractors with leading indicators.

Key Topics

  • What lagging indicators are important to evaluate contractors?
  • What tools are available to track this data?
  • How is the industry using leading indicators?
  • Hear real world examples of how leading indicators surpass lagging indicators.
